Carpe DC is looking for outgoing, dynamic, friendly people who want to show off Washington, DC’s food culture to locals and tourists alike. Our goal is to share DC’s rich history and diverse culture through the foods of the neighborhoods, so our guests may appreciate all DC has to offer, and get inspired to explore their own neck of the woods.
We’re passionate about supporting the neighborhoods we work in. We’re the first Washington, DC food tour that features a one-for-one program where a portion of each ticket purchased helps feed a local resident in need, through our partner Bread for the City.
Here are a few things to keep in mind:
Our peak season begins mid-March (Cherry Blossom time) and slows down in December. However, we will be training before that, and offer tours year-round.
Weekend hours will be required.
Day and evening hours are available.
